Geocache Description:

Located in a popular park in Halifax.

" In 1853, a descendant, John Purcell, operated a ferry between the cove and Point Pleasant Park. The family used rowboats and sailboats to ferry passengers across the Arm for more than a century. There is still evidence of these once serviceable piers on both sides of the North West Arm."

"Granite and ironstone were cut from the quarries near Purcell's Cove and were used to construct military forts in Halifax as well as many of the buildings on the Dalhousie University campus. "

The cache is a small loc & loc container which contains a logbook, small items (such as coins, tokens, poker chips, lapel pins, etc.) and a small FTF prize!

Parking can be found here: N 44 37.529 W 63 33.866 or here: N 44 37.515' W 63 34.417'
